Our purpose is to enlighten people about overlooked issues such as cancer research and heart health. We work primarily with murals, mosaic pieces, and sculptures to bring awareness to our community. We may also be branching out into public access television in the future.
This program began with artists and art teachers who wanted to do more for the community. There were many parents who felt their children were doing good work, but they weren't connected to the school or community.
We are involved in the Charleston area community. Our founder is local artist Daryle Halbert, who received a Master of Fine Arts and fell in love with public art while living in Philadelphia. His residency with the Philadelphia Mural Arts program inspired him to found Public Arts to Health and Stability.
While we have encountered other after-school art programs in the past, we are the only group actively sharing art with our community. Many art programs focus on the individual, but we focus on the community. We want to let the community to see the world of the children who live within it.
